‘The Needle’s Excellency’

A fascinating and colourful documentary that shows how Nicola guided a group of adult learners, under the auspices of Ornamental Embroidery with colleague Dr Lynn Hulse, in the making of 20 individual C17th style raised work caskets.

The course was run at the Ashmolean Museum and the completed embroidered caskets were exhibited there in May 2017. They went on to be displayed in the Textile Gallery at all the Knitting and Stitching Shows in autumn 2018.
